Princess Eugenie has dubbed her parents as the "best divorced couple I know" ahead of her 18th birthday.

The Princess, who will turn 18 on March 23, is going to host a low-key event with family and close friends.

In an interview with Tatler magazine the Princess talked about her family and the relationships she has with her sister, parents and grandmother.

"She is truly one of the most amazing women ever," she said about the Queen. "She is also very funny. All I can say is that she has this air of magic about her."

Talking about her parents, the Duke and the Duchess of York, Princess Eugenie said the couple had a very amicable split.

"They are the best divorced couple I know. I don't remember much of the divorce happening. They just always went out of their way to make us feel loved and secure," she said.

She has also admitted to bickering with her older sister Princess Beatrice from time to time.

"Like all sisters we have silly arguments about unimportant stuff, but we do love each other to death," she said.

Princess Eugenie is studying for her A-Levels at Marlborough College in Wiltshire.

She is head of the poetry society at school and her interests include reading, painting and working for her mother's charity Children in Crisis.
